So apparently this emailer read one story and decided he didn't like it, thus all new short-fiction is awful. And it's his opinion to do so, but to think that there would be a consensus to that opinion is just ridiculous. Authors like Cat Rambo, Emily Skaftun, Laird Barron, Ken Liu, Rachel Swirsky, Yukimi Ogawa, A.C. Wise, Nicole Korhner-Stace, Megan Arkenberg, needless to say the list goes on and on; these are people putting out wonderful sf/f short stories. There's so much talent in the field that even semi-pro sites are putting out award-winning work.New short fiction seems to place innovation over all other qualities possible in a particular piece, which means my desire to read a good story is likely to go unsatisfied.
As for novels, are feminists and/or women watering down work to make it more attractive to the "Scalzified" lefties? No. I'd submit Gillian Flynn and Margaret Atwood as sufficient evidence of that. Atwood is about as liberal as they come but her work is magnificient.
Vox would like to think that he'd be some international writing superstar if only a big publisher would have picked up Throne of Bones. Honestly though, it would've been the same extremists, misanthropists, and racists who read the work currently. Assuming he didn't keep his big stupid mouth shut, which I assume he wouldn't have. And then the publisher's would have taken a big hit for giving this hateful bastard a contract in the first place. And rightfully so.
The truth is, there's great fantasy and sf/f on the market, despite what Orson Scott Card or Teddy B thinks. You need only to open your eyes.
